Work Environment

Gun shops and gunsmithing operations are usually clean, compact, and efficient. Many gunsmiths work in one-person operations such as a small shop at the back of a gun or sporting goods store. Others work in repair shops. Volatile solvents are used, so proper ventilation is necessary. Some of the machinery used can be noisy, as are firing ranges. Handling guns requires special attention and care. Safety precautions must be followed at all times to prevent accidental misfirings or exploding guns.
